Along with its own activities, the Museo also produces other shared activities that are the result of ongoing dialogue with a number of established collaborators. These activities include festivals, theatre performances, music conservatories, independent spaces, etc.

    Bernardo Atxaga

    Poetry Reading in front of Guernica

    Music, Dance and Performance Dramatized readings

    Inspired by the tragic event that took place 75 years ago, Guernica is much more than a work of art. It has become a universal statement on the massacre. This condition, a synthesis of avant-garde pursuits and political engagement, has had a great influence not only on the visual arts but also on literature. The poetry reading, given in front of the painting by the writer Bernardo Atxaga (Guipúzcoa, 1951), includes poems by Luis Cernuda and Paul Éluard and traces the impact that the mural by Pablo Picasso has had on the written word.
